With areas of cherry blossoms, green banks, and bridges acting as meeting places for young lovers, the river provides a welcome and varied place to evade the crowds and listen to the flowing water.

  • In the Central Kyoto basin to the North and South River, from Demachi-yanagi near the branch to Kamo and the Takano River. Shijo Ohashi who demachiyanagi marutamachi-bridge per the river waterfowl or early in the morning may have local dog walkers, walking, gymnastics, etc., tourists stroll along. Sitting in the River in summer, evening talk a couple hits. Night are crowded in summer in the restaurant of the Ponto-Cho in the summer. Shallow river, enters the River, late-night drunken college students, or rampage. Sanjo Ohashi bridge over this river is also the end point of the Tokaido road.

  • We enjoyed autumn leaves and charipota up your pond bridge on the right bank dike from the article bridge over kamogawa River. Fall foliage, such as shrines and temples of Kyoto City seems to be beginning to color. However, the leaves of the Kamo River on the right bank and left bank was at their best. In particular, the leaves near the Sanjo Ohashi bridge was very beautiful.

  • Beautiful river that allows a relaxing stroll on its banks. Better go over the wooden bridge. Just after 100 meters begins a walk nice and calm, far from the roar of the crowd. There are also typical Japanese restaurants that offer great tofu and with beautiful panoramic terrace overlooking the river. I spent half a day relaxing and really pretty.
